>> I'm trying to find a language which is based solely on events


Funny. Around 1984 I was writing network simulators and I asked pretty
much the same question on Usenet. I was looking for an event-based
language (as opposed to continuous simulation, like Dynamo or GPSS). I
got a reply from someone at AT&T about C with classes.


Nowadays it's known as C++.


Another language you might hear about is Simula.
